Lotad -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Lotad Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lotad from the Primal Clash set.  Lotad is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lotad does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Beat, for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lotad is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Lombre and a stage 2 evolution in Ludicolo, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, this card could be used in a deck, since it requires any type of energy cards you want to use.  But because it can't attack for only one energy card and it only does have the one move, I wouldn't strongly recommend using this card in a deck.  If you do decide to use this card in a deck, only use one or two, and try and get Lotad into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, put two energy cards on it, and use Beat every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  There really isn't anything below average on this card, it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and one average move, but because this card is quite limited in what it can do, and it requires two energy cards to attack, I docked it a point and gave it a 2 out of 5 rating.
